My great-grandfather was John Taplin Hatcher and is buried at Pleasant Grove Church in Mitchell County.

I have documentation showing that Needham Hatcher bought land in Mitchell county 7/14/1883 (lot 80) 9th district. This is currently where my family lives.

NAME: Don Sellers

Sellers, John
I am searching for census data or other information about John Sellers who was born in Baker County, Ga in 1850. The only John Sellers that I can find, with the appropriate age, is John Sellers on the 1870 Mitchell County census. To verify that this is the correct John Sellers I need the census data for 1860 and 1870 for Mitchell County showing all residents. There is a possibility that John moved in with some other family and may be listed with a different named family. The 1870 Mitchell County Ga, page 6 shows a John Sellers but I do not have the family listing. I understand that Mitchell County was created from Baker County and that could be the reason for John Sellers appearing on the 1870 Mitchell County census.
I appreciate any help offered. I have family data on John Sellers and wife Sarahan Kelly (Decatur County, Ga) to include all of John's sister's and brother. I am willing to share this info with anyone searching this family line.
